On Wednesday, January 16th MPD Officers spent the day at the Red Wing Youth Correctional Facility with the residents.
Officers know the recidivism rate of juvenile offenders is around 70% within 3 years of release. This is not good for them, their families or our communities.
Many of the young men have never had a positive interaction with law enforcement, so our Officers make weekly trips to engage and mentor the juveniles.
MPD maintains a positive and professional relationship with a handful of the youth when they are released.
